Minty Avocado Smoothie | Greek Yogurt Green Smoothie | Avocado Kiwi Smoothie

Smooth and creamy smoothie with a strong avocado flavor and just a hint of tangy kiwi. The cucumber and yogurt is added for health benefits and to also thicken the smoothie into a really nice rich consistency. An avocado smoothie is special and not just because of the creamy, luscious texture. The healthy fats it contains really keep you full all day. Ripe kiwi (with skin) lend sweetness, while cucumber, mint adds freshness and perfect crunch of pistachios, pumpkin seeds.

Minty Avocado Smoothie

Avocados provide a uniquely silky texture to smoothies without an overbearing taste. Avocados can give real substance to what might otherwise be an unfulfilling smoothie, and they offer a range of health benefits too. They’re high in protein and potassium, and a great source of fiber and healthy fat.

Avocado Kiwi Smoothie

Loaded with Vitamin C, kiwi has potent antioxidant properties, which help boost immune system function and enhance cell protection. In smoothie I used kiwi with skin – it is completely edible and makes this nutrient-dense fruit even more nutritious! A recent study shows that eating the skin triples the fiber intake compared to merely eating the flesh. Not peeling the skin, you preserve much of the vitamin C content as well.

Kiwi – Rich in Vitamin C

Cucumbers are full of water whereas mint has a cooling effect as well. This smoothie will keep you cool and refreshed all summer day. Seeds, nuts are super high in essential fatty acids, including omega-3, and high in antioxidants. They blend easily into your smoothies, without changing the flavor or texture too much.

Smoothies are a great way to pack fiber- and vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables, protein, and good fats into a drinkable meal or snack. Nothing beats this refreshingly smoothie on a hot summer’s day.

Energizing Green Smoothie | Green Goddess Beverage | No Dairy Smoothie

This green smoothie is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. So, if you haven’t tried adding spinach to your smoothie yet, this smoothie is the answer. Combined with other ingredients you will get a vitamin bomb full of antioxidants and other nutrients good for your body.

Energizing Green Smoothie

I loved the combo of this kiwi, cucumber, and spinach. It was sweet and fresh, but not too sweet. It is best to stick mostly to vegetables when making green juice and only use fruits to accent the flavors or add a hint of natural sweetness.

The more fruits you add to your green smoothie, the more sugar will be in your serving of green juice. In this delicious smoothie, I try to balance vegetables with a small amount of fruit to make it easily drinkable but also not too loaded in sugar. To add sweetness to the smoothie I added grapes and kiwi.

No Dairy Smoothie

Grapes aren’t often blended in a smoothie. Grapes are 80% water, which makes them blend easily and add extra hydration to your smoothie. Cucumbers are so nourishing, and they’re totally in season at this time of year. They’ve got a range of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, and their phytonutrients are linked to anti-cancer benefits. Blended with spinach, mint, and fruits makes this smoothie perfect for summer.

Healthy Beverage

Smoothies are a great way to pack fiber and vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables, protein, and good fats into a drinkable meal or snack. They normally contain less sugar than the fruity smoothies, which makes them a healthier choice but, of course, it all depends on the ingredients. You need to make sure you are not consuming large amounts of sugar by adding too many fruits in one drink.

Green Smoothie

Although this is natural fructose, if you consume very sweet, fruity smoothies daily you might be adding too much sugar to your diet. This is why it’s a good idea to always combine fruits and veggies when you choose your smoothie ingredients.
